One of A Good Company’s side projects, an open-source type foundry, The League of Moveable Type started when we saw a thread on a popular type forum, Typophile, calling for an open-source font project. With the possibilities of what we can do with @font-face, it seemed like too good of an idea to just let die. We also realized that there are a lot of free fonts out there, but more than just giving away free stuff, being designers (and most of our work involving the web) we wanted to raise the standard of typography and design on the web. So we created an open-source type foundry, where we focus on quality not quantity, so we can provide people with hand-picked quality typefaces.
The very first typeface we added to The League's font library was Junction, a humanist san-serif typeface I had designed back in college. After that, we released League Gothic, a revival of an old classic and one of our favorite typefaces, Alternate Gothic.
Today a handful of awesome designers have helped expand both Junction and League Gothic into a different weights, creating a happy extended type family.
